Can't set ESSID
Fri Oct 24 10:12:17 PDT 2003
I have an IBM Notebook with a Mini-PCI (Prism2.5) wlan Card. I'm using Linux
Kernel 2.6.0-test8 with the hostap-cvs and Wireless-Tools v26. All compiles
great and even loading the kernel module works perfectly.
Now, I set the Interface with "iwconfig" in "mode Managed". This also works,
but now, if I try to set the ESSID (iwconfig wlan0 essid "foobar") iwconfig
doesn't seem to recognize the ESSID.
It allways stays like this:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:""
Mode:Managed Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00 Bit Rate:2Mb/s
Retry min limit:8 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Hope someone can help me!
